The paper describes the archaeological fieldwork from 2015 to 2018 in the Neolithic site of Uomo della Roccia. It lies in the Italian Prealps between Lake Garda and River Brenta, which are a natural passage between the alpine world and the Po plain. The site is in the Schio – Recoaro minerary district, corresponding to the eastern part of the Lessini mountains, embracing the upper Agno valley, the Leogra valley, the Posina river basin, the Tretto area and the Sinello valley in the Trentino region. The district is rich with minerary sources, not only copper but also iron sources. The archaeological excavation discovered an agrarian landscape made of terraces, the oldest dating to Early Middle Ages, that covered a previous occupation in which the remains of a structure and a big amount of artefacts were pinpointed. The artefacts and radiocarbon dating show that the bulk of occupation was in an advanced stage of Neolithic age.
